Vancouver Playhouse Wine Festival 2011-21

The Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival is widely regarded as the best consumer wine show on the continent and this year’s event will bring 180 participating wineries from 15 countries. Expected to entertain some 25,000 wine enthusiasts at 64 events, the Festival will offer seven days of tastings, seminars, and wine focused minglers hosted at the Vancouver Convention Centre West.

Although the weekend is packed with wine seminars, luncheins and industry events – nothing tops the Tasting Room where you can hop from country to country sampling over 791 different wines.

Once you walk in, you’re handed an empty glass and given a license to start sampling! Everything is on display and nothing is off limits. Sample the very best of wine, port, rosé, sparkling, erlot, champaign and plenty more! Not a wine coneisseur? No worries! Each winery booth will give you the rundown on exactly what you’re tasting whether you’re a novice or a pro. Be sure to purchase your tickets in advance as many events sell out fast.
